Help Mataji Booker record "Vertical Love", the EP!

$10,065

The time has finally come for me to record my first album!

I'm grateful to be working with the very gifted Tita Lima as my Producer on this project close to my heart. Musicians here in Los Angeles, as well as in Sao Paolo Brazil (thanks to file sharing technology) are sharing their time and skills to enhance this EP, an album we are striving to make the first of its kind -  crafting a unique sound fusing my minimal style of Acoustic/Folk/Soul with Tita's South American background and world rhythm sensibilities. Music and lyrics to change your mood, to get us moving but also to slow us down and to reflect on life and love. Love from below and from above, hence the albums' release title "Vertical Love."

We're thrilled to be able to invite the global community along on our journey to help take this project through to it's completion and beyond so that we can give it back to the world.

I've answered thoughts to frequently asked questions [FAQ below] which will tell you more about me, my musical journey and my vision for this project and onward. 

Thank you kindly for stopping by,

Mataji B. ♥
